Championship Predictions 2016/17 - GW1 (Welcome)

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Championship 2016/17 VT prediction league, you can join in at any time during the tournament but please make sure you follow the instructions carefully. However, if you are just thinking about just playing for a single week, or are going to lose interest after a couple of weeks, then do us all a time saving favour and don't bother playing.

-- Making a Prediction --

  1. Head on over to https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1JJHBdYRs_tzHsVDF1lpSoNIvr6E0nthT6nE47V_UQ44/edit?usp=sharing
  2. Make sure you are selecting the right sheet for the Gameweek (inactive sheets will be fully locked)
  3. Find the first 'blank' entry with all scores set as '0-0' and 'ENTER YOUR NAME HERE' as the name
  4. Green Cells are for you to enter stuff into, all other cells are not!
  5. Fill in your predicted scores for each game
  6. When entering your name, make sure it is EXACTLY the same as your VT name and that it doesn't have any erroneous spaces and is CaSe SeNsEtIvE
    :excl: Incorrectly entered names, even if it is just a space at the start or a capital letter, will result in tracking errors throughout the tournament :excl:
  7. Once your prediction is complete, copy the cells within the dotted line and post them into this VT thread
    :excl: If you do not post the results correctly into this thread then your prediction will be ignored :excl:
  8. Thread banter is encouraged, but please post banter before your pasted predictions.
  9. Gameweek already started? No problem you can still play, just put the score for the games you have missed as £-$, e.g
    Fulham £-$ Villa


-- When will prediction threads be posted up? --

  • Generally I will try and post threads on Tuesday or Wednesday of each week, but this may slip at times. Just keep an eye on the forum and it'll be there before the games start.
  • Gameweek matches will follow those as laid out on the BBC Championship fixtures page, let me know if I miss something due to a game being moved or postponed etc.


-- Previous Gameweek Results --

Gameweek Results and running leader board will be posted in this space for each gameweek thread.

-- My (Chewie's) Prediction for this Gameweek --

Name Home Team     Away Team Guess
  Fulham 1 3 Newcastle Newcastle
  Birmingham 1 0 Cardiff Birmingham
  Blackburn 0 1 Norwich Norwich
  Bristol 2 1 Wigan Bristol
  Derby 3 1 Brighton Derby
  Huddersfield 1 0 Brentford Huddersfield
  Ipswich 2 1 Barnsley Ipswich
  Forest 2 0 Burton Forest
  Reading 2 0 Preston Reading
  Rotherham 2 2 Wolves Draw
  QPR 2 1 Leeds QPR
  Wednesday 2 0 Villa Wednesday
Chewie          

:excl: When pasting your prediction table you might want to hit enter a couple of times before you post your prediction in. The editor makes life difficult to create a new line after you paste the table in if you haven't 'entered' a couple of times first. :excl:

-- Bets --

In each Gameweek I will aim to select two predictions of my choosing, one for correct results and one for Both Teams to score (Yes/No). I shall then place a £1 oaccumulator on each of those bets, should they win I will give the predictor 20% of the winnings to be paid via Paypal.

-- Good Luck --

Good luck to everyone for the week, and please don't be a bitch and mess with other people's predictions in the Google Sheet, there's a good girl :)

Chewie - had completed the google spreadsheet but for some reason when I copied and pasted the cells into this thread it comes out as:

Where you trying with a computer or on mobile? The formatting doesn't matter much as long as there is a record of the scores for each game.

I'm using a new PC as mine blew up a few weeks ago!

It maybe as this doesn't have any Windows Office program installed yet

If you're happy with shonky formatiting - here's my predictions (as on the speadsheet!)

Home Team   Away Team Guess
Fulham 1 1 Newcastle Draw
Birmingham 0 1 Cardiff Cardiff
Blackburn 2 1 Norwich Blackburn
Bristol 1 0 Wigan Bristol
Derby 2 1 Brighton Derby
Huddersfield 1 0 Brentford Huddersfield
Ipswich 3 1 Barnsley Ipswich
Forest 1 1 Burton Draw
Reading 1 1 Preston Draw
Rotherham 0 2 Wolves Wolves
QPR 1 1 Leeds Draw
Wednesday 0 1 Villa Villa

Having office installed or not shouldn't make a difference. What version of Windows are you using, and what browser? Not that it matters too much, but I am just interested in what could be causing the formatting to be lost between you copying and pasting.

Also, would you be a dear and "delete" your first post in the thread so that it doesn't confuse me with all the 0-0 scores?

And no problem about running it, my pleasure.

On Windows 10 and Microsoft Edge browser (will probably get around to installing Mozilla Firefox again!)

Original post deleted too.

Thanks for adjusting the post. I had a sneaky suspicion it might be due to Edge, so give it a whirl with Firefox or Chrome next week and I reckon it'll look all nice n purty like ;)

Hey @Chewie Does it have to close after kickoff of the 1st game? I just missed it :-(

I've left the sheet open so just put $-£ for this game and do the rest of your scores as normal :)
